Recipe by Sandy in Oklahoma

This recipe was printed in an advertising flyer for a local realtor. My neighbor brought some over after she made them and they were pretty dang tasty. These would make great cookies for St. Patrick's Day.

These little gems are truly addicting! I made them for St. Patrick's day this year and within 24 my fiance and I had gobbled up the entire patch. I didn't have any almond extract so I subbed vanilla and they still were great. Very subtle flavor that leaves you wanting more. Thanks so much.
